SRI LANKA BEGIN WAR DEAD CENSUS

0

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka said on Wednesday it would begin a nationwide survey to compile a death toll from its ethnic conflict after international pressure over allegations of mass civilian deaths at the end of the war. The six-month census would begin on Thursday and would see some 16,000 officials fan out across the island to compile a definitive toll.
